Thursday Open Thread

Since we keep being told that we don’t have enough of those and, well, you have a point.

We’re having too much fun being pithy on Teh Twitter right now (@EmperorMisha), annoying the multitudes with snarky shit, although we still don’t see how <140 characters can ever be a useful means of communicating. Oh well, if there’s even the remotest chance that we can piss somebody off and make them wet their Depends, it’s worth it.

Why are liberals upset with Lanza? He was just picking up where their friends, Planned Parenthood, left off. No Child Left Alive

This is fun!

    Twitter has its uses. One service it has provided was to allow us to watch the ersatz (p)Resident try to hold a discussion on national policy with voters on several occasions over the last few years. Makes an Abbott and Costello movie look like a documentary on applied quantum mechanics.

    Beware, however, the trap that Twitter sets for the unwary. While exploring the Twitterverse, it is possible to catch a glimpse of the hive mind of the mob we call the low information voters, who inhabit the cellars and sub-basements of Twitter. The effect that this exposure has on your soul is a bit like the result of looking into Medusa’s eyes.

    Obama calls on public to lobby Congress on gun restrictions

    President Obama will observe a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. today at the White House, marking one week since a lone gunman opened fire in a Connecticut elementary school, killing 20 first graders before turning a gun on himself.

    And he pledged in a video that he’d do everything in his power as president to address safety, mental health issues and the culture of violence that may have contributed to the tragedy.

    “If there’s even one thing we can do as a country to protect our children, we have a responsibility to try,” the president said.

    The video was a response to the “We The People” petitions that have been submitted to the White House in the wake of the Newtown tragedy. In it, Obama urges viewers to call Congress “as many times as it takes” to push for gun restrictions. Obama earlier this week called on Congress to ban the sale of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips as he announced that Vice President Joe Biden would lead an effort to develop “concrete proposals” to stem gun violence. He wants answers by January.

    “If we’re going to succeed it’s going to take a sustained effort,” Obama says in the video. “You started something and now I’m asking you to keep at it.”

    Petitions relating to gun violence have amassed more than 400,000 signatures, making it one of the most popular petition issues since the White House launched We the People. One of the gun petitions was the fastest petition ever to reach the 25,000 signature threshold required for White House review.

    The Tired Race Card
    For how long will the Left pound a square peg into a round hole?

    By Jonah Goldberg

    When will liberals stop living in the past? Specifically, when will they accept that they aren’t all that stands between a wonderful, tolerant America and Jim Crow?

    I was in the room when, during the Democratic convention, civil-rights hero John Lewis suggested that Republicans wanted to “go back” to the days when black men like him could be beaten in the street by the enforcers of Jim Crow. I thought it an outrageous and disgusting bit of demagoguery. The audience of Democratic delegates cheered in a riot of self-congratulation.

    It’s bizarre. I spend most of my time talking or listening to fellow conservatives, and I never hear anybody talk about wanting anything of the sort. But to listen to liberals, that’s all we care about.

    Toward the end of the presidential campaign, various liberal pundits — a great many of them born after the signing of the Civil Rights Act — thought it a brilliant and damning indictment to note that Mitt Romney ran strong in states that once constituted the Confederacy. When Barack Obama won, Jon Stewart conceded that at least Romney won “most of the Confederacy.”

    These states committed the obvious sin of voting Republican while the president was black.

    Just this week, in an essay for the New York Times, Adolph Reed attacked South Carolina governor Nikki Haley — the first female Indian-American governor in America — for appointing Representative Tim Scott to retiring senator Jim DeMint’s seat. Scott is a black man and a conservative Tea Party favorite.

    So obviously, this is a very clever ploy to restore Jim Crow.

    “Just as white Southern Democrats once used cynical manipulations — poll taxes, grandfather clauses, literacy tests — to get around the 15th Amendment,” Reed writes, “so modern-day Republicans have deployed blacks to undermine black interests.”

    That’s it exactly. Indeed, that’s what the Tea Party was always about: undermining black interests.

    When Herman Cain — another inconveniently black man — was the overwhelming preference among Tea Party activists for the Republican presidential nomination, a historian writing in the New York Times suggested that Cain could be seen as proof the legacy of the Ku Klux Klan lives on.

    You know you’ve been pounding a square peg into a round hole for too long when you find yourself insinuating that a black man from Georgia represents the KKK tradition in contemporary politics.

    More recently, liberal writers apparently convinced themselves that Republican opposition to Susan Rice becoming the next secretary of state was payback for the Emancipation or something.

    “Angry over the reelection of the nation’s first black president,” vented a writer for The American Prospect, “a handful of old white senators — one of whom hails from the cradle of the Confederacy — launch hysterical and dishonest attacks on . . . a well-qualified African American woman.”

    The Washington Post editorial board connected the dots, too, finding it important to note that of the Republican legislators expressing their reservations about Rice, “nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy.”

    Of course, the same racist representatives of Dixie also thought it fine to confirm Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice for the same job.

    It’s like a metastasizing cancer of delusion. Jim Sleeper, a lecturer at Yale and once a relatively sober-minded liberal writer, insists that opposition to gun control has something to do with the segregationist mind-set. Or something.

    To watch MSNBC is to think the hosts see themselves as the official newsletter of the Underground Railroad.

    Sure, there are racists in the Republican party. (There are some in the Democratic party, too.) And if you define racism as disagreeing with the Congressional Black Caucus or Barack Obama, the GOP is racist to the bone.

    But the inconvenient truth is that conservatives are not only not racist, they aren’t a fraction as obsessed with race as liberals are.

    Of course, that lack of obsession is no doubt itself proof of conservative racism. And why shouldn’t it be? Everything else is.

    Do I have to spell it it out for you My Liege? Once a child is IN school, tons of OUR Tax money is spent filling his and her head with the crap teachers believe. And the First thing any Liberal believes is that they should Never be Required to DO anything to get what they want.
    We can now expect attacks from all sides against NRA members and Our families. There will be public insults, attempts to provoke violent reactions to same, vandalism to our vehicles with NRA stickers, and our homes and property. When you leave the supermarket make sure you are not being followed. Have a care with all electronic devices. Expect political reprisals from school authorities against Your sons and daughters such as bad grades, banishment from activities, and open humiliation in class intended to provoke reaction for which discipline and suspensions are meted out. Remember. Peer pressure and social ostracism is more feared by most people more than getting killed. And the families of House members who are Pro gun will be targeted without respite until they cave in. And It Will Happen: phantom phone calls, picketing of personal residences, stalking, and everything short of felony so that they cannot claim to be a victim. In any case, the one thing we will not escape is that from here on, no firearm will be transferred legally without government approval. This will include all bequests too. So if your sons are of age, do it Now under notary seal. It will take at least four generations to undo the damage done by the last two if ever. When Billius Clintonus was on the imperial beltway throne we were told to bury our guns. It’s far too late and the culture too far gone. Bury your Books. The change we seek may well come, but not while we live.

    In regards to Gladiator’s post #13, that lower than whaleshit “Confederacy” comment… I’d love the opportunity to show that city-bred, panty-waste, creampuff piece of shit just what a pathetic cocksock he is. If there’s one thing that ALWAYS blows my top, it’s some metrosexual choadhuffer talking down about people just because they’re from the South. Smarmy mother, he wouldn’t last ten minutes in my woods. My apologies to any LCs that hail north of the Mason-Dixon, but that attitude has been a dagger in the side of southern states since BEFORE the War of Northern Aggression. Elitist fucktards, we’ll see how hard they laugh when the SHTF and we bring out our guns. I for one and sick to death of this faux upper class and would love to see the season open on them.

    Alabama Bans U.N. Agenda 21 Sovereignty Surrender

    Property Rights: Few have heard of Agenda 21, the U.N. plan for sustainable development that tosses property rights aside. But Alabama has, and it recently secured a victory as important as that over union power in Wisconsin.

    After Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s stunning triumph over the excesses and abuses of public-sector unions, the London Telegraph’s James Delingpole, an indefatigable opponent of global warming fraud, opined in a piece titled, “How Wisconsin And Alabama Helped Save The World,” that we should take note of “an equally important but perhaps less well-publicized victory won in the Alabama House and Senate over the U.N.’s malign and insidious Agenda 21.”

    Agenda 21 is one of those compacts, like Law of the Sea, Kyoto and New START, that are supported by an apologetic administration with a fondness for the redistribution of American power and wealth on a local and global scale.

    It fits in perfectly with President Obama’s pledge to “fundamentally transform” America, its institutions and its heritage of capitalist freedom.

    Agenda 21 has not been ratified by the U.S. Senate, but it may not have to be if in a second Obama term the Environmental Protection Agency pursues it by stealth, as it has other environmental agendas that make war on the free enterprise system and rights we hold dear.

    One of those is property rights. “Land … cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market,” Agenda 21 says.

    “Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes.”

    Not liking the sound of that, Alabama recently passed Senate Bill 477 unanimously in both of its houses. The legislation bars the taking of private property in Alabama without due process and says that “Alabama and all political subdivisions may not adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe or restrict private property rights without due process, as may be required by policy recommendations originating in or traceable to Agenda 21.”

    Agenda 21 is intended to foster what environmentalists call “sustainable development” in the belief that man since the Industrial Revolution has been a plague on the planet, plundering its resources while destroying nature and putting the world at risk of disastrous climate change, poverty and disease.

    At the end of March, EPA administrator Lisa Jackson jetted off to Paris’ ministerial meeting of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, as the press release put it, “to discuss the agency’s international efforts on urban sustainability.”

    Excuse us, but “urban sustainability” at the behest of global organizations is not what the EPA was created to do.

    Jackson will represent the U.S. at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, which will be held June 20-22 in Rio de Janeiro.

    “Specifically, in a transition to a green economy, public policies will need to be used strategically to reorient consumption, investments and other economic activities,” a U.N. document describing the conference explains.

    The EPA’s war on coal, its regulating carbon dioxide as a pollutant and its regulatory abuses including the use of drones to spy on American farmers are key parts of this international agenda that Jackson says “is the rarest of opportunities to truly change the world. … It means working together to strengthen the effectiveness of environmental governance.”

    We don’t need “environmental governance,” just a governance of, by and for the people of the United States.

    Nor do we need to “reorient” our consumption and economic activities.

    Alabama has just told the U.N. and the EPA what they need to be told — don’t tread on us.
